During the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival, China became the biggest focus. Chinese pianist Lang Lang gave one of his flamboyant performances; Zhejiang's Changxing Lotus Dragon Dance Folklore Group also made a first visit by telling a story through dance and music; Tao Dance Theater performed for two days to reveal the unique charm of China's contemporary dance.
In addition, the National Theatre of Scotland and Tianjin Children's Art Theatre jointly performed a drama named Dragon with vivid imagination. Although without words, the fast moving physical theatre, puppetry and original music won wide praise from the audience.
